Join local author, Jodie Hollander, at Vail Public Library where she will recount her recent trip on the SS Vallejo houseboat, as part of the Varda Artists Residency Program. Jodie will share with us her experiences on the SS Vallejo, followed up by a discussion of her poetry. The aim of the Varda Artists Residency Program is to provide a prolific environment where creative people can exchange innovative ideas, technical knowledge and produce new works. The residency is private and by invitation only. Jodie studied poetry in England and has published her work in journals such as The Poetry Review, The Dark Horse, The Rialto, Verse Daily, The Warwick Review, Agenda, Australia’s Best Poems, 2011, and Australia’s Best Poems of 2015. Her debut publication, The Humane Society, was released by Tall-Lighthouse (London) in 2012.
